Three Basins

Three Basins gets its name from the three pools that lay at the bottom of this collection of small waterfalls. Without doubt, this is a peaceful site and a place to enjoy the gentle sounds of the water.

The main attraction at this waterfall is not actually the falling water, but rather the three pools they collect in at the bottom. These basins are filled by numerous small streams that create the waterfalls. If you look closely, you can see the paths the streams have taken overtime, carving their way into the rock and eroding the Earth, and eventually forming the pools themselves.


Positioned on the island of Dominica, close to Grand Fond, Three Basins welcomes local residents and vacationers who are rooming on this part of the island. Whether or not you are staying nearby, you are free to stop by for some fun in the sun. If you're curious, Roseau is to the west-southwest.

This natural beauty is easy to get to, and not as secluded as many other waterfalls. However, part of its natural state means it is not on the main road, so it may be best to ask for directions at the nearby city of Fond Morgan.
